Radiator Whiskey

We flew to Seattle on a Saturday, leaving Pittsburgh on a 7:30 am flight and arriving in Seattle around 1 pm Pacific time (after a 2 hour stop in Denver). After getting the rental car, stopping at a Costco for bottled water, and navigating our way into the city and our hotel, we decided to simply walk around Pike Place Market before our dinner reservation. We were feeling a little tired and a lot hungry (I ate the worst & most expensive bagel ever in Denver - that place should be embarrassed to even sell that "bagel" and the bagel police should arrest them for crimes against bagels). Our dinner destination: Radiator Whiskey in the Corner Market Building at Pike Place Market.
Fortunately, we made a reservation. The 2 couples in front of us turned around and left because they were full and the wait was long. We were seated right away, right next to one of the wonderful arched windows. It was open on a lovely day. There are a lot of bourbons and whiskeys on the drink menu. A lot. Happily, it turned out we were there during Happy Hour.
We both ordered a cocktail and iced tea. For SP, a Manhattan, the Einstein Classic (templeton rye or buffalo trace bourbon, carpano antica angostura) and for me, Phil Collins (buffalo trace bourbon, lemon, soda, house grenadine). Both were good.
We sipped our cocktails while munching on popcorn and enjoying the open window and thinking about what to order. We easily agreed on sharing the Side of Heirloom Tomatoes:
They were really juicy and just so darn good. We both really like tomatoes so we ordered them every chance we got in Seattle.
For his meal, SP chose Lamb Neck Sloppy Joe (coleslaw, fried onions, bun). He really, really liked it. Really liked it. Talked about it off & on throughout the rest of the trip.
I chose a special Happy Hour sandwich: Debris Sandwich (pulled pork, smoked cheddar, fried egg, Fritos). I was a little sad the Fritos were those BBQ ones. I only like plain Fritos. But the sandwich was delicious if a little salty for my taste.
We both really liked Radiator Whiskey. It's a boisterous yet relaxing, casual environment, with great service & tasty food. If we hadn't been tired form getting up so early and traveling, it would have been nice to linger and have another drink. It's a 21+ only place and I'd suggest reservations if you plan to dine there on a weekend.
